Marmotte's line Map

This is an easy access line again just turn left 100 meters after the entrance of green slope "Marmotte's line" and hike until the top of the forest area. The line is a short line without much steepness and gets more gentle at the lowest section where it can feel like a piste. The line is well protected from the sun so a good amount of snow is present there so weather check is important before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty high into the right ridge due to the proximity of this one and getting lower as soon as you get away from this one. The line finishes on the red piste "Djeu des Têtes" which leads back to Torgon ski area.
